38. Spirit magic

“……I’ve shot <Geo Greys> before but this was so strong……..even though the magic power was only me and Misha………” Sasha mutters to herself in amazement as the huge soldier falls to the ground.

“……..Surprising……”

Misha’s voice can also be heard from the ice castle.

“Nee Arnos, what did you do?”

“I’ve already told you. Listen to your own origin”

“Even if you say my own origin what does that……….ahh………”

Sasha raised a sound that says she’s noticed.

“Separation Fusion Reincarnation <Dino Jikusess>?” Misha asks

“So that’s how it is.”

Originally Sasha and Misha were one person but <Dino Jikusess> was applied to Sasha and her origin was divided in two and from that Misha was born.

They were supposed to return to one being on their 15th birthday with their magic power increased by a factor of 10, however, I sent Misha’s and Sasha’s origins to the past and had them merge with the 2 origins existing in the past and from that they became 2 separate people.

It’s not perfect however due to the fact the origins are newly born but even so, their magic power cannot be compared to their past selves.

Until now Sasha and Misha were unaware of this due to Past Modification <Ingudu> so they believed that their power was the same as before.

This was, however, necessary. Thanks to Time Manipulation <Lebaido> if they were made aware beforehand it would cause a contradiction between the past and the present and if that happened then altering the past would not go well.

However, the conditions of <Ingudu> are now met so the power limiter has disappeared. That is the reason Misha could use fast and highly accurate Construction Creation <Ibis>.

“Say so earlier. I might have realised too late and died here.”

Sasha lands in the forest and looks around.

“Nee. If anyone’s still alive, please answer. I’ll help you.”

She calls out but there’s no reply.

I can still feel magic power everywhere so I don’t think anyone’s died.

“How’s that? Seems your prided castle has been crushed.”

I take my eyes of Remote Clairvoyance <Rimnet> and turn to Ray.

“Though it’s disappointing I guess this is my defeat….”

He smiled his refreshing smile

“Or so your subordinates probably think.”

Then through <Liikus> I heard Sasha’s voice.

“Aww enough already. Raining at such a time….”

Rain? It’s a clear sky without any clouds even.

“Be careful.”

Misha’s voice calls out.

“What’s wrong?”

“It’s not raining here. It’s only raining over Sasha.”

The colour of Sasha’s complexion changes.

The rain had now turned into a downpour and severely limited her field of vision, however, even if your view is limited it has no impact on demon eyes that can see magic.

“…..What’s this……this rain….it’s not ordinary rain Misha.”

“……Every single drop of rain has the same wavelength as Misa’s magic. I can’t find her main body…..” Misha replied.

Sasha’s eyes narrow.

“What’s with that? This magic……? It’s not lost magic. I’ve never heard of it before.”

Fumu. Isn’t this spirit magic?

This is the same magic that Riniyon the grand water spirit used in the great spirit forest Ahartherun.

Misa is half-demon half-spirit. Is she linked to Riniyon somehow?

The magic of spirits is special since they are magic themselves.

From the beginning, exchanges between the mazoku and the spirits were uncommon so after a thousand years of no interaction, the knowledge and traditions of the spirits that the mazoku did know would have disappeared.

Well, maybe not completely. Unlike me, the true demon king of tyranny who’s been wiped from history some documents on the spirits should exist somewhere.

Neither Sasha nor Misha knew what this was so Misa must have hidden her spirit magic until today.

To reveal it here means she must want to win.

Though its a familiar magic to me if Sasha can’t deal with the source of it then she’ll struggle to cope.

For Misa, it’s a rare chance to beat the superior Sasha.

Sasha must understand this as well.

“Fine. I’ll strike first. You’d better be prepared though. If you can’t stop it you’ll die.”

Sasha erects an anti-magic barrier and a magic barrier on top of herself.

Sasha’s power had improved dramatically from <Dino Jikusess> and on top of that, she’s got the Sorcerer <Mage> class as well which further boosts her magic power.

Misa and the fan union will have a hard time breaking through Sasha’s defence.

“Here we go!!”

From the downpour, the girls from the fan union appear and attack Sasha.

Eight people in total, all with spears in their hands.

They must have judged they couldn’t break through Sasha’s anti-magic.

They attacked from all directions and struck with all their might.

“You finally showed up.”

Sasha’s barrier blocked all the attacks without a single scratch.

Sasha looked at all eight of them with her demon eyes.

“Please sleep for a while.”

“….Aah…….”

All eight of the girls staggered and fell down unconscious.

“I went easy on you. You should all be up in a day or so.”

“……Not yet……”

Sasha’s eyes open wide at a voice.

One of the fan union girls who should have been unconscious was crawling along the ground.

“…….I will enter……..Arnos-sama’s group……”

The opponent is overwhelmingly inferior in magic power, however, they resisted the <Demon Eyes of Ruin> through sheer willpower.

In this moment Sasha was distracted.

The raindrops falling down took on the figure of a person and suddenly Misa appeared over Sasha’s head wielding a pure white demon sword.

“I’ve got you Sasha-san!”

“Naive.”

Sasha deploys full power anti-magic barriers and magic barriers overhead.

Misa swings her demon sword down.

“Haaaaaa!!”

The snow-white demon sword easily broke through Sasha’s barriers and cut her down from head to abdomen.

Fresh blood flows out and Sasha collapses.

“…..Haaa………haaa…….”

Misa landed on the ground breathing heavily. She must have put all her effort into that attack.

“Fumu. I see. Is that your demon sword?” I ask Ray.

No matter how good the surprise attack, Misa herself lacked the power to break through Sasha’s defences.

“Though a demon sword chooses its owner there’s a magic connection through Demon King Army <Guys> and because of that I can lend it temporarily.”

“You can’t normally do that.”

“Perhaps.”

If I’m not mistaken, wasn’t there a story that he could handle holy swords and divine swords as well?

Even if that’s the case, its well outside the norm to subjugate a demon sword and lend it to other people.

He resembles Shin a little.

“Hadn’t you better go and heal her? She’s currently Sorcerer <Mage> class. I don’t think she’ll be able to heal the wound from that demon sword.”

I snorted at Ray’s words.

“I’ve already told you once. Don’t underestimate my subordinates.”

Sasha is reflected in the waterfall monitor and the next moment her body is wrapped up in a golden flame.

Misa was surprised and backed off reflexively.

“That was unexpected. I didn’t think you could use a demon sword.”

Sasha gets up and flies in the sky.

Her entire body is still wrapped in golden flames as she gradually embodies the <Phoenix Vestment> she’s wearing.

The robe grants the benefits of immortality. As long as your magic does not run out it will heal all wounds over and over again.

“…..Then my next step is to cut off that robe……..”

Misa sets up her pure white demon sword.

As expected. Sasha still needs to be wary of that sword.

“I’ll help. I feel Ray’s power coming from that demon sword. One person is at a disadvantage.” Misha’s voice rang out.

“…Though I’m glad I think it will be decided before Misha arrives.”

Misha can’t fire a <Geo Greys> from the castle as Sasha will be hit but Misa will not wait for Misha to arrive either is probably what Sasha thought but suddenly a magic formation appeared right by Sasha and standing there was a platinum blonde haired girl.

It’s Misha.

Sasha can’t hide her surprise.

“Misha……..was that Transfer <Gatom>?”

“Because I’ve seen it many times now I thought I could do it.”

Fumu. I’ve certainly shown it many times but you can’t just imitate <Gatom> with that alone. <Dino Jikusess> must have strengthened her demon eyes as well.

“…….That’s fine. Fill me in on the details after we beat that woman.”

“Nn”

“….Both Misha-san and Sasha-san are amazing……but I cannot afford to lose here………”

Looking up at Misha and Sasha who are standing side by side Misa puts all her power into the demon sword.

Despite Ray’s help, that demon sword is not suitable for Misa. The fight cant be dragged out much longer.

“…..Here I go.”

Misa readies her stance and kicks the ground.

“Sasha.”

“I know.”

Sasha forms a magic circle and readies Scorching Black Flame <Griado>.

The golden flames from the <Phoenix Vestment> are still wrapped around Sasha’s body. They mix with <Griado> and turn it a golden colour before Sasha fires it at Misa.

“Haaa!!”

Misa cuts the golden flame with her pure white sword extinguishing it.

“As I thought.”

“A demon sword that cuts magic.”

The foundation of magic is the technique used to cast it. A magic blueprint so to speak. That pure white sword cuts though magic by cutting through the technique itself thus nullifying the magic.

“…..Have you understood it? Neither magic nor anti-magic works on this sword…….In addition…..”

The body of Misa turned into raindrops and disappeared completely.

She became rain itself by using her spirit magic.

“Misha.”

“Nn.”

Standing back to back Sasha and Misha connect both their hands from behind.

They don’t know where Misa will appear from and in front of that sword, both defence and offence are invalidated. Almost.

However

“Fufuu.” Sasha laughed.

“Whats is it?”

“I never thought a day like this would come.”

In a normal school and in a normal exam it wouldn’t be unusual for sisters to work together and challenge it, however, for them, this is an irreplaceable miracle they could only have dreamed of.

“We’ll show you the secret art of the Necrons.”

“Nn.”

Misha smiled a light smile.

“Here I coooooome!!”

Out of the raindrops Misa suddenly appeared in front of them.

She’s 3 steps away from reaching them with her sword and Sasha creates a magic circle to meet her.

“Wrong.” Misha mutters.

Misa doesn’t have the demon sword she’s only pretending to.

Sasha quickly looks up startled.

Overhead the raindrops changed into a pure white demon sword that was falling towards them at a tremendous speed.

It was so fast Misa must have thought it was unavoidable but the bodies of two people disappeared. The falling sword cuts through the empty air and pierces the ground.

“That’s regrettable.”

Misha had used <Gatom> to avoid the falling sword.

They both reappeared with one pair of hands clasped together and their other hands pointing at Misa.

“Demon Flame <Guresode>”

“Demon Ice <Shade>”

They then both spoke at the same time

“Demon Ice Demon Fire Rivalry Wave <Jie Gureido>”

The Necron secret arts. Fusion magic. They combined <Guresode> and <Shade>. Golden fire and silvery-white ice combine into a glacial fire that attacks Misa.

Misa immediately pulls the pure white demon sword from the ground and prepares to cut <Jie Gureido>.

“Haaaaa…….!!”

Demon sword and magic wave collide, however, even though <Jie Gureidos> momentum was reduced it wasn’t stopped.

The magic technique constructed by fusion magic is complex with the techniques overlapping in layers.

Even if the surface technique is nullified the two magics underneath would just separate but still exist.

Misa didn’t have the skill to cut all the techniques at once.

“Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!”

Wrapped in flames and ice Misa’s body is blown away.

After hitting the ground she didn’t move. Has she lost consciousness?

The effects of the spirit magic is over and the rain disappears.

Light abruptly broke through the clouds overhead.

“Though we had practised alone…….we matched our breathing pretty well for our first time.”

Misha smiled lightly at Sasha’s words.

“I am the same as Sasha.”

Sasha laughed happily.

Fusion magic is difficult due to trying to match the magic wavelengths but for these two it’s as easy as breathing.

Probably because they were originally the same existence.

“I’m the same as Misha too.”

While speaking Sasha raises her hand and Misha high-fives her.

    • If you want to easily distinguish between Misa and Misha you need to know how Misa looks like.
      Google “Misa Iriologue” if you want to see her LN illustrations. Once you know how she looks like you will no longer mistake her for Misha.

      As they say, a picture is a thousand words.

  1. I give you a hand/help with your translate progress, like edit and proofread. But there is one condition if we were to work together one this “Maou Gakuin”, that is to up your release rate a bit faster. If you are interests in me please email me: minhchung01996@gmail.com. Also if you have discord let me know the invite code in the mail you send me. Thanks you for reading my recommendation, tempus ^

    • Oh well, using comments so can’t with auto-correct spelling. P.s: My auto-correct spelling is weird -_-“

    • I thank you for your offer but I’m fine thanks.

      As for my release times that is down to my free time or lack thereof. I’ve mentioned it before in other posts but I’ll reiterate it again for those that missed it.

      Unless I’m on holiday I now work 6 days a week, my commute is 1hr 30min each way (that’s assuming a free run with no holdups) and I work 10 to 12 hour shifts. What little time I have left is spent on trying to keep in touch with friends and family and generally living. I manage 1 release a week due to this. I’m not unique in this nor am I asking for sympathy I’m just stating my situation. I would love nothing more than translate novels all day long but this does not pay my bills. If it did you can guarantee I’d be releasing 4 to 5 times a week.

      Hopefully, that clarifies my situation a bit for those unaware.

  2. I like the fact that Misa swings Ray’s demon sword easily despite not being well versed in swordsmanship , and that is due to the fact that she is half demon and half spirit, so she is not a normal human girl that doesn’t have much physical strength to swing a sword around. Her demon lineage gives her that physical strength that surpasses a common human girl’s.

    Also, I like her swinging that sword as I always liked girls that wield a sword in Light Novels as I am a fan of Stella from Rakudai Kishi, so Misa in this chapter reminded me of Stella. Does anyone else here like girls that uses swords in JP novels ?
